Mousehole is such a lovely place to visit, not spoilt by commercialisation. Sadly most of the cottages are now holiday homes which are mostly unoccupied during winter periods. Most of the people you will meet in Mousehole are not long established families they are either...More

A beautiful spot, with a quaint but still active harbour and narrow windy lanes in the streets around the harbour rising up the hillside. Lots of galleries and small shops to spend time. Very picturesque town to meander through.

Visited this small coastal village on a cloudy and windy day in April. Beautiful location with a small harbour with two small sandy beaches in the harbour. Small lanes with many cafes and galleries to visit. Well worth the visit and recommended

Mousehole is a charming place. It is small and driving to it might be challenging, but there is a great car park by the water and you will love the area. It is a great place to stop and walk around, eat lunch and shop....More

Lovely little place to visit with its quirky little streets and houses. Parking interesting - park further out and walk in. Some excellent cafes in which to sit and watch the world go by. Lovely.

Mousehole is on the South West Coast Pathway and is a very pleasant destination for an easy walk from anywhere in Penzance. Saw a row boat race off the coast which as an old boat rower gave me a lot of interest. The village is...More

From the Harbour carpark, with a pair of binoculars we watched several seals playing in the water and on the rocks on the rocky island just a little way off the harbour mouth. A large bull seal was swimming very close to the harbour mouth!!

Had a lovely week in Mousehole. Meal at 2 Fore Street was best meal I’ve had in a long time. Very recommended. We also ate at the Old Coastguard which was a little disappointing. More on this on my review for them. Worst thing about...More

No, we've only stayed at the Coastguard (our favourite hotel) or The Ship (pub on front). I've just had a look at Seacrest on Cornish Gems & it does look amazing. I'm guessing it must be on the road from Mousehole to... More
